    One person`s solution -

    "Got it sorted
    I downloaded the latest dx9 (DirectX End-User Runtimes (Full Download)
    but didn`t seem to work then went to steams forums and it says to disable
    programs like p2p and stuff like that,so i switched off these progs
    thunderbird
    sysmatrix
    msn messenger "

    It might be an idea to uninstall the game before doing the above.

    This is the page from whence that idea came HERE

    I think this is the download that was mentioned HERE

    I suggest you try all other possibilities in that thread first.Different solutions work for different situations.
